Feast of the Guardian Angels
Contrary to the current 'devotion' Neo-Catholicism has fostered since Vatican II, God did not assign to each soul a celestial patron and protector for a temporal life Oh so secure that should keep unmolested whatever part of Oh so 'happy' life a neo-pagan-partly-Catholic citizen of the "New World [dis]Order" would 'feel blessed' about. Our guardian angels are assigned to us in view of our entanglement with the proud spirit "who stood not in the truth" (Jn. 8.44). "God made man right, and hath entangled himself with an infinity of questions" (Ecclus. 7.30), that is, "God made man right," explains St. Alphonsus, "in the state of justice [in original subjection to God]; but, by giving ear to [the subtle decepton of the ancient infernal liar], man exposed himself to temptation, and was conquered (Sermon for today, XXth after Pentecost). Let us take very careful note of how the devil has conquered us - from the beginning, he conspired with our senses and played with our passions: subversion from within is his favorite game (as is also against the Church especially through Vatican II 'hijacked' by 'ecclesiastics' infected or perverted by the 'Modernist liberalism' of the revolutionary 'Rights of Man' and diffusing their "diabolical disorientation" in 'official' modernized 'Seminaries, 'Pontifical' Universities and 'Catholic' schools, and of course in their "New" Rite of 'Mass' and other 'Sacraments').
God sends us His messengers to communicate His design for us - the right order of things for us. But we miss this - and how dreadful it is! "He was at the point of death" (from today's Holy Gospel, XXth after Pentecost) - when any passion unregulated by the dictates of reason and prudence enlightened by Faith, takes possession of the heart for this unruly appetite obscures the truth, and makes the soul incapable of distinguishing between good and evil. Souls under the sway of God know what true devotion to Him consists in by the inspiration of their guardian angels: "Give me not over to a shameless and foolish mind" (Ecclus. 23.6) lest I abandon Thy way.
